I don't either. That's why I'm paying someone else to do it :)

Well I wouldn't say I had overheating problems but hot lapping and summer days caused 230F temps. While that's ok for an LS, I really would prefer things to stay under 210 under all circumstances. So I replaced my no name 1600 cfm pusher fan with this 2100 cfm Derale pusher fan. It's a 12 inch. I put it on the top left and plan to get another 12 inch puller for the bottom right. I figure that will give me the best possible cooling since I can't run a single shrouded puller. So far, just this fan kept my car at 197 when it was ambient 97F outside. The old fan would sit at 210 in stop and go traffic. I did manage to blow the alleged 30 amp relay I was using for this. I also felt like the 16 gauge wiring I was using was pretty damn hot. Gonna step up to some 14 gauge since this fan does 23 amps (allegedly).
